The dressing for this fun take on potato salad is a combination of Whole30-compatible ranch dressing and buffalo sauce. It gets the characteristic creaminess you want in your potato salad from the ranch and a lip-tingling spike of vinegary heat from the hot sauce.

Servings 4 people


  • 1 lb Yukon gold potatoes, quartered
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup compatible buffalo-style hot sauce (we like The New Primal, Primal Kitchen & Frank's Red Hot sauces)
  • 3 tbsp compatible ranch dressing
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs (see recipe, below)
  • coarse black pepper


  • IN a large saucepan, combine potatoes, salt, and enough cold water to cover the potatoes. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 10 minutes or just until potatoes are tender. Drain well; cool slightly. 
  • MEANWHILE, for the dressing, in a large bowl stir together the buffalo hot sauce and ranch dressing. Add the onion, bell pepper, celery, scallions, and chives. Coarsely chop two of the hard-boiled eggs and add to the salad along with the potatoes; stir gently to coat. Cover and chill at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours. 
  • TRANSFER the potato salad to a serving bowl. Halve the remaining two eggs and place on top of the salad, yolk-side up. Sprinkle with black pepper.
  • Instructions for Hard-Cooked Eggs: Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a rolling boil; reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 12 minutes. Drain and cover with cold water. Let stand until completely cooled. Crack and peel the eggs.
